Buenos Aires, Argentina -- University Students with Pick and Shovel

For the past 13 years, university men from Buenos Aires have traveled to the southern part of the country to carry out volunteer work in El Bolsón. Organized by the University Association for Development, this year 55 students and teachers dedicated 15 days of their vacation to this social work.

The Association, inspired by the message of St. Josemaría, also organized another social project in La Viña, in the north of Argentina, with over 90 young men taking part. The activities continue during the school year with visits to the sick and aged and other social work in the poor areas of Buenos Aires and other Argentinean cities.
